well hammered during the campaign. joining us now, juan williams, fox news political analyst. and mary katharine ham, editor-at-large of hotair.com and also a fox news contributor. first of all we want to make clear at the outset, we all know that there is the death of an american ambassador and three other embassy personnel at the center of all this but, juan, is it possible in this political season when you're talking about you know the prestige and the influence of the united states abroad for the reaction to all of this not to become a political issue? >> well, in terms of the deaths, john, i think every american, i don't think your political stripe much matters here, regrets an american ambassador would be killed in this situation. after all the united states did to help liberate libya from qaddafi. i don't think anybody disagrees with that.
